Uniform Experiment Honors Danish Artist Asger Jorn for Bold SS21 Capsule

Uniform Experiment is honoring the works of late Danish painter and artist Asger Jorn for a graphic-filled Spring/Summer 2021 capsule, and the Japanese label has called on Sk8thing and Hiroshi Fujiwara to help design this special project.

Asger Jorn was a painter, sculptor, ceramic artist and author, who was a founding member of the Situationist International as well as an early pioneer of a European avant-garde movement called COBRA (“CO” for Copenhagen; “BR,” Brussels; and “A,” Amsterdam). In an interview, Sk8thing and Hiroshi Fujiwara noted how Jorn’s artworks influenced the likes of Malcolm Mclaren and Jamie Reid and, therefore, likely played a major role in the creation of Punk culture.

This capsule includes an expansive array of pieces faithfully emblazoned with some of Jorn’s works, like MA-1 jackets and button-ups colored with abstract paint and a handful of hoodies, T-shirts and sweaters decorated with collages and bold serif fonts.

One noteworthy piece is a black hoodie that’s been printed with the word “MÉMOIRES.” This motif is the title of Jorn’s art book, which examined the artist’s situationist concept. Another highlight is a button-up detailed with blue and green paint splatters layered over with black prints taken from magazines and newspapers. There are a total of 15 pieces in the capsule and each one is a nod to the artist’s legacy.

Uniform Experiment’s Asger Jorn SS21 capsule is currently available on the label’s website, ranging from ¥3,300 – ¥42,900 JPY (approximately $31 – $409 USD).
